|Pope Benedict XVI at his Urbi et Orbi address for 2011.|
During his Urbi et Orbi address for Christmas Day 2011, the Pope briefly prayed for the victims of recent floods in Southeast Asia, including Mindanao:
May the Lord grant comfort to the peoples of South-East Asia, particularly Thailand and the Philippines, who are still enduring grave hardships as a result of the recent floods.
Thank you, Holy Father! Keep us in your prayers!
